A handy tool for looking up Scripture verses...

If you visit websites that include Scripture references, or include Bible references in your MS Word documents there is a great little tool I have found that makes looking up those references a snap. EZword is a small program that runs on your PC and allows you to look up Scripture references by simply hovering your mouse over the reference. Just point your mouse at the reference and a small window automatically pops open to show you the complete text (in context). When you move your mouse away, the window automatically closes. It is that simple. The program also allows to to paste verses into MS Word documents without the need to open other Bible software programs. This handy feature can really help ensure that you are quoting the verse correctly.
The program is only $9.95 and comes with the King James Version (KJV) and the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB). There are a number of other versions available at additional costs. I use the New American Standard for most of my studies and purchased it for an additional $19.95. This bundle included the NAS 1977 edition, as well as the 1995 Update. All of these Bibles have footnotes and additional helps available. This is a cool tool that makes looking up Scripture while working on the Internet a breeze. At $9.95, it is a great bargain as well.
